investment funds from wealthy foreigners most of the money through corporations registered in panama. some of the most secretive of business laws exist there in panama. does that story prove the president's points, that business leaders don't come by successful initiatives on their own? >> well, i think certainly not, tom. i think the recent polls you've cited have shown that the president's false attacks on mitt romney aren't working right now and the people care about the economy. i want to turn to your point about the context of the president's you didn't build that remark. there was a good article by phil klein this morning saying that the contextually made that comment worse. if you look at the whole speech and what he's arguing, it's that

corporations registered in panama. and then known for tax advantages and unusual banking secrecy. in an interview with abc news this morning, anne romney was asked to respond to thebain attacks and she came out swinging. >> i was beneath the dignity of the office of the president to do something as egregious as that. to attack somebody on that level is i believe beneath his dignity. >> nbc's senior political editor mark murray is here. he joins me now. and mark, fascinating numbers on the polls. we'll put it up there. 47-46. obama 47-41. razor thin race and obama seems to be just brought down by his handling of the economy. can't shake it. >> luke, there are two forces at play which show why the polls pretty much are the same. that this race is essentially tied or deadlocked, however you want to describe it. the economic forces keeping president obama down, but also, the fact that people aren't yet still sold on mitt romney. and these two forces are at play right now which explains why we see president obama up two or three points up in one poll. overall i don't think the race wi

says quote, most of the foreign investors' money came through corporations registered in panama. then known for tax advantages and unusual banking secrecy. but it didn't matter to romney where the money was coming from, he knew there was little risk to him in starting his investment fund. he was assured by his boss bill bain back in 1984 that starting up bain capital would be a non-risk prospect for romney. ezra klein at the washington post writes, romney would get his old job and salary back plus any raises he would have earned during his absence. and bain promised that if necessary he would craft a cover story saying that romney's return to bain and company was needed because of his value as a consultant. so there was no professional or financial risk. no professional or financial risk. that's the kind of security that's denied to most americans. there's also news today undercutting romney's claim that he left bain back in 1999 to run the salt lake city olympics. >> i had no association with the banishment of bain capital after february of 1999. that's when i left the firm. i'

, the caribbean, the panama canal, the north atlantic. 35-foot seas. that was exciting. she is a battleship. you take a look around and you will see why. this is where all the big decisions of the war were made back in world war ii in the '40s. you get chills coming into a place like this. we helped to shell korea, the russians were like, look at that ship. back in the '40s, during the conference, president roosevelt was on board the ship so he took this and used it as his taxi to go across the ocean to meet with churchill and stalin. he was in a wheelchair, as you know. this was where he stayed. because this is the only ship in the navy with a bathtub. past, present and future. president roosevelt took a bath in this bathtub. in the '80 they retro fitted the ship and these are for anti-aircraft and we could bombard the shore, too. they would fire 15 rounds a minute. here's one of her guns. 16 inch in diameter. i could fit in there. each one of these barrels, 67 feet long. fire a projectile 24 miles. one day i fired the guns, too. i did not hear the boom like you would out here but i felt the co
corporations regist registered in panama which actually gave very preferential tax treatment. you didn't have to pay a whole lot of taxes. and so this story actually highlights the nebulous world of offshore accounts, tax perks for very wealthy folks that have been dogging mitt romney and his campaign now for a couple of weeks. >> there's the headline there of the article that you just mentioned, bain capital started with help of offshore investors. we should note here, of course, the romney campaign responding today, their response, here it is in part, quote, president obama's own jobs council advocating more foreign direct investment in the u.s. to help grow the economy, something president obama himself has been unable to do, as illustrated by the recent downgrades in gdp forecast. how these investors chose to invest is their decision, not bain capital's. do you think, mark murray, do you think any of this adds fuel to the fire over romney's tenure at bai? >> you know, craig, i think the danger for romney campaign is there's almost going to be a drip-drip nature. you're going to have artic
! let's get to the boards. one or two things going on we want you to know about. panama city, florida, one of the most beautiful places on the planet. and look at reno. when you send in the twitter pictures, we look at them and put one or two on the air. 13 states with heat watching, warnings, or advisories today. some facing record temperatures. this looks like this range of heat right here will last into probably thursday in the middle of the country. we'll talk a lot about that in the headlines as we go through. there's the opportunity to get a couple of doses of rain in the spots that are heavy in red. into thelready well 70's and highs today will be in the mid 90's today and tomorrow. a few thunderstorms this evening and by >> all of that weather was brought to you by target. and now, let's get to our dear friend, josh elliott. good morning, josh. >>> our good friend mehmet oz is back with us this morning. we look at the latest episode of the unbelievably gripping "new york med." we get access to the top hospital. we find out what goes on behind the closed doors of the staff loun
about passage of the panama, colombia, and korea free trade agreements, and once again they are providing tremendous leadership on our goal of creating good american jobs by prying open that mark and ensuring that the united states worker will have access to it. if you think about not only creating jobs here, but dealing with the problems of crony capitalism, dealing with the problems of a massive bureaucracy, and dealing with a corrupt court system which is what exists under putin today, this is the right thing for us to do. we should not lose access to the market. i also want to note that my very good friend, mr. herger, who has been a great leader on the issue of trade is here, mr. berg is here who has very involved in this. i would be happy to yield to my friend from new york, mr. reed, who has played an important role on this issue. mr. reed: i thank the gentleman. i rise today in strong support to join my friend from california as he knows we have been supportive of free trade from the moment we got here. i was so pleased to see colombia, panama, and south korea b
the mud, look what happened in latin america with columbia and panama, allies of ours in the free trade agreements. there is no strong foreign policy coming out of the administration. i don't think at the end of the day they want to campaign on foreign policy either, because it's one of weakness. it is why we have so much instability around the world because people don't know where the united states stands. we need to stand up for those who are fighting for their freedom. we need to do what is right by the people of the united states and around the world. >> shannon: you are running for senate. you have a primary august 14 and then hope to go head to head -- moving beyond that. the senate very much in play to a lot of folks. but do you think it's realistic for the g.o.p. to pick up a significant number of seats this is fall? >> i do, for a number of reasons. one, the economy is in such bad shape. it has to do with the policies that have come out from president obama and lock-step liberals that think that government is the answer to all of our problems. when you have a weak foreign polic
around the world and people started canceling vacations. only a few tar balls got as far east as panama city beach, and the rest of the gulf coast beaches all the way down to the southern tip of florida, no oil. but the tourists stopped coming. and when the tourists stopped coming, there's nobody in the hotels, and the hotel workers can't work. there's nobody in the restaurants, and all of those workers aren't working. and all the ancillary businesses that depend on that major component of the economy. and then of course the seafood industry, the source of a third of our domestic seafood in this country, the gulf of mexico -- of course the fishing industry was devastated. and even those that could fish outside of the danger zone of where the oil was lurking, people stopped buying gulf seafood because they were afraid that it was tainted. and even when the oil was finally shut off after three months, the gulf was left with this public perception that the gulf was tainted. well, you remember the president asked the secretary of the navy, ray maybus to recommend a strategy that would resto
. most financial investors money came from corporations registered in panama, then one of the world's most secretive business jurisdictions, offering a confidentiality intense advantages. previously unreleased details and other public records -- bain capital was emeshed in the largely opaque world of international high finance from its inception. romney faces increasing criticism for his own involvement in exotic offshore investment funds. that is front page of the chicago tribune this morning. and the lead story in the miami herald is -- in congress, few released their congress. nancy pelosi was an phatic. mitt romney the's to release more than two years of his tax return, it makes him unfit to win confirmation as a member of the president's cabinet, let alone hold the high office himself. harry reid went further. his refusal to make public tax record makes him unfit to be a dogcatcher. they do not think that standard of transparency should apply to them. the democratic leaders of the senate and house are among hundreds of senators and representatives from both parties who refused
? >why? >> i can go back to the invasion of panama in 1989 and worked for. we realize that just having a military battle you had one was not the end of the game. perhaps we should have done at the beginning to avoid that battle in the first time -- place or, having won the battle, how do we preserve the peace? >> you have to be careful when we talk about these terms such as smart power or heart power or soft power. i'm reminded of a conversation i had with the former archbishop of canterbury in 2003. you might have been there. it was on the eve of the second gulf war. the archbishops stood up and said, general powell, why don't we just use soft power? it was a critique of what we were getting ready to do. the answer i gave him was that it was not soft power that rescue britain from hitler. it was part power. you had to have all of it. when we won with hard power in world war ii, we use soft power in germany and asia to create democracies. the importance of this coalition, what makes what we are doing tonight so important, is that we understand that we need it all. we have been shortcha
, in norman di, england, mexico city, and panama, we have 140,000 crosses or other symbols that might be projected as being religious. sadly, what we've got going on in san diego, it's those who claim in the name of religious tolerance, want to destroy our war memorials, if anyone takes offense to this, all this does, we're -- all this says, we're not going to tear down the four million crosses on the veterans' memorials across the country and we're not going to tear down or use any funds from this budget to tear down the war memorial that stands on top of mount soledad at la jolla, san diego, california. i hope my colleagues can say in the spirit of tolerance, no one needs to go out and be so intolerant as to tear down war memorials because somebody may claim it may have a religious connotation. god knows, we don't want to start tearing down the four million crosses that exist today or those thousands of star of davids that proudly sit today on veterans and federal property. >> will the gentleman yield? mr. bilbray: yes. mr. free ling -- mr. young: we support your amendment. mr. bilb

the free trade agreement with colombia, panama and south korea. we are already seeing the economic benefits of that in south florida. imagine in if we were able to do that with more countries in a free and fair way. has to be fair. one last thing we could probably do to help grow this economy is deal with the long-term debt. that's what it is, it's a long-term debt problem that hovers over all over this conversation and creates some uncertainty. people are afraid especially people with lots of money are afraid to investigate in the american -- invest in the america economy, and they think that country is destined for confiscatory tax rates. they're going where europe is going. we don't want to invest in a country that will wind up like europe in five years. that's why we have to deal with the long-term debt and the sooner the better. and to deal with the long-term debt, by the way, you have to deal what with what's causing it. that's why it's so important we save medicare. medicare is a very important program. my mother is on medicare. i would never support anything that hurts my mother or
